often hear president obama talking about lincoln, mitt romney talking about ronald reagan, and now "newsweek" is out with a list of the ten best presidents since 1900. sir harold evans who is author of the fabulous, "the american century" has a tribute. it's a ploesh to have you here. >> thank you, madam. >> you gaekted together ten distinguished historians. what was the criteria? >> the criteria was what kind of active presidents were they. it's very interesting. the historians, all -- every single one of them chose franklin roosevelt as number one. >> why? >> best president since theodore roosevelt in the beginning of the century. if you ask them why he did that, he was active and effective, those two things. and he had a sense of america's ideal of itself. so they took those criteria. they didn't know what the others were doing. they all voted and it's interesting the top three -- >> so it wasn't a big sitting around the table and discussing this. >> no, no. it was all in isolation. they locked them in a room with an ice pack and 5,000 volumes of their own works and said, come u
and think about it. so did ronald reagan. >> ronald reagan, 8% growth. >> we're not debating ronald reagan. we're debating obama. >> reagan had a far worse economy than obama inherited. he said he was inheriting it and he said -- but he hasn't fixed it. >> wow. >> stephanie: wow. really reaching now, aren't you? >> they love to revise the reagan and -- as media matters has pointed out there is no comparison in terms of the economy because the fed could just change interest rates which they did, which basically fixed that economy. you know, the fed can't do anymore when you're at zero, you can't go any lower. also, the unemployment completely different story. what hannity never mentions, if you go back to -- we're going way back here. if you're going back to the closing months of the carter/reagan campaign, unemployment was going down under the last six months under jimmy carter. ronald reagan won and it skyrocketed back up. ronald reagan did not inherit climbing unemployment the way barack obama did. ronald reag
and ronald reagan for a little perspective for us. gregg: plus, he earned a law degree, he passed the bar exam, but this young man came to the country when he was 9 years old and became an illegal immigrant. can the state deny him a law license because of his legal status?

ronald reagan took office, the marginal office with 71% to 72%. it is interesting to me that the greatness that people speak of in terms of the united states, when we talk about the 1940's, the 1950's, the 1960's, 1970's, the marginal rate that folks paid was much greater. nobody says we will go back to that. at the same time, during the clinton years, we had marginal rates that were a little bit higher than they are now and we had some of the best economic times that the country has ever seen. that is what i'm talking about. my concern for the country is that all of this heat has been generated around this issue instead of light and analysis and a sober look at the role that every american play, should play in strengthening our country. that is the concern i have in the long run. >> i want to pick up mr. cruz's suggestion that the economy is in trouble from -- is in trouble. texas has endured. but san antonio has had a tough couple of years. the census bureau report brought these numbers appeared between 2009 and 2011, unemployment in san antonio went up by more than a
was a segregationist. >> and he sign the southern manifesto, . ronald reagan opened his campaign in new jersey, then detroit, and when he was in detroit he made fun of jimmy carter for actually giving his opening speech in the home of the kkk that time. i would add that jimmy carter also endorsed maddox for governor, the segregationist restaurant owner who chased blacks from his restaurant. al gore, well, of course his father, al gore sr., voted against the '64 civil rights act, an unrepentant segregationist. all the segregationists in the senate were all democrats, remained liberal. strom thurman, 18 years after running as a dixie-crat, not a dixie-can, because the segregation wing, the racial wing, always part of the democratic party, the same way the abortion ladies are part of the democratic party now, and they've tried to make up for this awful history by, first of all, reversing the parties they call the democrat segregationist southerners, again not all southerners -- >> sean: when you look at demographics, in a sense these tactics, class warfare, scaring granny, and the race card has b
ronald reagan in that debate? >> right. >> do you recall that? >> that's right. >> all this talk about ronald reagan and whether obama had sort of invoked the name of ronald reagan because so many democrats didn't like him or whatever. well senator obama then took the punches, explained what he said about reagan and took it back to her, keeping the anger under control, finding balance and pushing back hard just not too hard. >> it was interesting too as well you could ask the most dry mundane question, dealing with the economy. they would go back to the talking points in the attacks. it was clear they were trying to score points. fireworks. a "game change"er if you will. i want you to see here's mitt romney in a scenario that played out in the debates, the primaries with rick perry in las vegas. >> i'm speaking. i'm speaking. >> you get 30 seconds. this is the way the rules work here. in get 60 seconds and then you get 30 donds respond. anderson -- >> you say -- you knew. >> would you please wait? are you just going keep talking? let me finish what i have to say. >> all right. there's

of the money we donate. we're donating money to government. we got a $16 trillion debt. as ronald reagan said, we have a debt, not because the american people are taxed too little, it's because their government spends too much. >> sean: i'm analyzing mr. common ground, your partner over here. >> yes. >> sean: what he's really saying, cal, we've got a false narrative, it's 14%, it doesn't tell the whole story, doesn't say this is the government's second bite at romney's apple, so he's going to run with it because demagoguing an issue work. >> with we the people, we are the government. >> sean: so romney pays taxes one time, 35%, whatever it is. >> he didn't pay it, but that's all right. >> sean: bob, he should be in jail. >> i want to know where harry reid's source is. he's proven he's paid taxes. where is harry reid apologizing? >> if both parties had the courage, democrats and republicans alike to deal with the one thing that matters, which is entitlements. >> i agree. >> i'll give ryan credit. i don't agree with his proposals, but at least he came out with something. romney campaign told hi
's troubles. the press didn't treat ronald reagan and george w. bush any less unfairly, and both men managed not onlyo win the presencyutge re-elected. mr. romney would do better to focus more on reducing his unforcedrrors and less on the fourth estate's political bias. ifhining about the liberal media was a winning strategy for republicans, newtingrich wou be t mi" well, and newt gingrich is a great example -- i don't mean to go back there -- a great example of the problem we're talking about here. because -- >> no. >> -- no, instead of stepping forward and separating himself from this candidate, he somehow, becausof his party -- at distraction.. >> it is. >> i'm talking about the presidential race. we're one week out from the first presidential debate, and we have brand-new polling out this morning from three separate swing states that show this race is slipping away. >> and they're the big e. andhey' tigth mika. >> yes, they are. are you ready? >> i'm ready for you to talk about the presidential race. >> zip it. according to the latest quinnipiac university/new york times/cbs news poll of
. former assistant of commerce for george h.w. bush and special assistant to ronald reagan. not the best image management. you specialize in crisis management. some compare to marie antoine e antoinette. all these cuts coming on and he's walking around smoking a stogy. >> a woman is a woman, because good cigar is a smoke, i say. >> you you may say that, but doesn't go down very well. >> you can't smoke inside, so i guess he figured he had to take the opportunity. it probably isn't the best image for a national figure to be smoking at all let along in public, let alone during a crisis, let alone on the streets of man hat continue. let's put a positive spin on it. perhaps it is his way of helping control his nerves. >> this is a prime minister that come and has promised all sorts of things when he got elected. once that starts happening, how on earth do you control it from a crisis management pr perspective? >> if we could control it, we'd all be rich. what we tried to do, what i'm sure his advisers are trying to do is to keep him cool, keep him focused. they've made a lot of announcement
that -- and then certainly by 1980, ronald reagan was very behind in the polls was just able to tidal wave over jimmy carter with quips like there you go again in a sort of staged format. since 1980, they have become part of the american landscape. >> the "new york times" recently wrote about this debate prep and the president of the united states is an awesome figure merely to share the platform with him on equal terms is the gain in stature, good performance will be gauged even better. why would any president agree to participate in an event that ultimately -- the -- because it's become now a demand, president obama suddenly bailed on debates. then, you know, he would be seeming like a poor sport. and also these debates are agreed upon long before the fall season, they're everything from the podium to the lighting, everything is worked out between the parties. >> do you think the presidential debate has ever changed the course of an election? >> i definitely do, i think we just talked about 1960, i think it changed it. i think in 1976, in 1980, i think also one could argue in 2000, it would al gore's kind
will turn in a campaign changing performance such as ronald reagan's in 1980. here is the truth about obama and romney, neither a stellar debater. obama didn't shine in the democratic primary debates, biden won them. that's why obama picked biden. candidate obama had a tendency to ramble in the debates, got better during mccain one on ones. while romney did well in this season's gop debates, had rough performances, bet you $10,000 he did. romney performances, the unspoken body language that the camera captured, they were brutal against ted kennedy. ivy league will enjoy biden versus ryan more. trust me. >>> turning back to the brand new battleground polls. there's a different pattern emerging, president obama is ahead in new hampshire, tighter in nevada and north carolina. joining me, director of the marist poll. good to see you in person. >> welcome to the home of the new york yankees. >> you're going to blow the playoff run. >> i am worried. >> we want the beltway series in washington. we have been looking at this as sort of the generic, the general all nine states. what is your take away
the challenger but think about, for example, mitt romney's challenge versus ronald reagan's challenge in 1980, ronald reagan's challenge was to convince people that the viewers out there, that he had the gravitas, the intellectual force to be president. he didn't have to convince them he was likable. that seems to be an easier challenge to achieve than for a mitt romney to come across to people as somebody they want to have in their living room for the next four years talking to them when that has been the challenge all along that people have not for one reason or another really warmed up to him. that's going to be hard to do in the course of a debate and also in the course of a debate where you simultaneously want to be likable but also to rattle your opponent a little bit. >> you have to be negative and irritating and try to get president obama off his game, but at the same time be likable coming on the heels of the 47% remark. >> that's a lot. a lot of work mitt romney has to do. president obama has some real work to do it too. he, as we've seen him throughout the democratic nomination fig
, everybody always remembers the great zingers. you know, usually something from ronald reagan, but here we go again expecting that people are going to try a little bit too hard. there's a real danger when you've been supplied with premixed, ready-made zingers to insert into the debate that mitt romney will insert them at the wrong time or say them not quite right. the only thing worse than having no zinger is having a zinger that comes off badly and comes back to bite you. so i think that's a perilous way to go, but i'll be there in denver, and i look forward to the attempts because it will make it far more interesting. >> indeed. we're delighted, ron, that you're here. you have devealed to us for the first time that you have prepped with mitt romney previously. >> i have. >> tell us a little bit about that. >> well, it was a remarkable experience. it was the 2008 campaign when he was running in the primaries. he assembled a smart group of folks to go up and run him through the paces. that was in anticipation of the first debate on msnbc mott rated by chris matthews. each person had a role, i
and dramatic and the person changes the party. ronald reagan changed the republican party. bill clinton changed the direction of the republican party. barack obama put a stomp on the democratic party in part of who he was and what he represented about the future, and what his election would represent about the country. but romney has put no stamp at all on the republican party. >> in fact... >> the republican party has stamped it's he'll on his forehead. >> that's what i was going to say. they starched him, branded him if you will. you also say that you don't think that the republican presidential candle dates from years past would have even come close saying what mitt romney said in that video behind closed doors about the 47%. what makes you say that? >> i just don't think that that degree of resentment and rage had percolated up to that level that it has in these last two or three years. you know, george w. bush, yes he favored the rich in his tax policies, there's no question about that, but he didn't drive a hatred of poor people. he didn't drive a narrative about, you know, working class
of ronald reagan. reagan went on to become the only california governor ever to win the presidency. the statue will be funded by private donations. >>> a man killed today, 38-year- old tony reyes was struck and killed near marsh road in redwood city just after 12:30 this morning. he graduated from -- and went on to become a professional bowler. investigators say he crashed into a sound wall, then got out of his truck and was hit by a passing suv. reyes died at the scene. >>> police say two are looking for a magazine salesman. we told you how police wanted to identify a salesman who allegedly talked two women into drawing money from an atm. now we have learned that it happened to 3 other people. it names the suspect as 24-year- old cody allen smith. >>> a group of 19 military veterans is suing is u.s. government. they say more should have been done to help them after they were sexually assaulted. say top military officials didn't do enough for the crimes. >> i have been alone and i have been silent. >> today daniel danielle hoffman is speaking out. >> it's hard to speak out, especia
. >> are you better off than you were four years ago. neil: you know ronald reagan asked that in 1980. mitt romney is set to is that in next debate. some say it's not so simple, we're off of the worst of the meltdown so, technically better than those days but also 5 trillion deeper in debt, so we're worse, then housing and retail sales, that muddy it somewhat. there is a piece of data that is stark in its consistancey for barack obama cutting to the core of this country fragility. household income is falling, how much of a factor will it have on this election. to former fed governor randal, and advisory joannie, who they make on this, randal, how big of an impact. >> this is important, average americans have not made progress over last few years, some is due to statistics because average households a little bit smaller overtime. also we have more people on lower incomes but living off their savings, this is a mayor challenge and makes people feel uncomfortable. neil: what is interesting that goes into this, our portfolio our income, president will argue, well, yes, tech neckly but in the --
and the me and he wants to reintroduce himself. ronald reagan suffered the same fate. the media cast him as a reckless cowboy who was going to blow up the world. we are quite willing to change the other horse is worth changing too. dagen: what notes with the economy. the president's presentation for it. neil: simplicity wins out and if you want to know four years of this he is your guy. if you want to get off this wagon i am your guy. [talking over each other] neil: do you like that? that is fine. and ronald reagan was more stark. better off than four years ago. and a slam dunk, and the democrats could argue -- convincing you make the argument. and if you are barack obama don't go back. and the environment you try to change so each will make their case. when you can do better even barack obama says we do better and hope we can and met romney says we can do better but in the end americans want to see who will guide them. connell: there have been a bunch of articles that these debates don't always change things and mitt romney has to hope that the polls are not what they are. neil: we disc
andy williams who passed away at 84 from bladder cancer. one of my favorite things was president ronald reagan called him a national treasure. somebody that everybody loved to watch, great performer. he didn't have the word "retire" in him. he will be missed. >> greg: bob? >> bob: well, this is dedicated to dana and eric. the new jersey state legislature has a bill pending that puts seat belts on cats and dogs. cats and dogs. if you don't have a seat belt on cat and dog, $20 fine and charge with cruelty against animals. i can't think of anything more ridiculous in my life. i'm with mitt. strap them to the top of the car or obama, eat them. but putting a seat belt on a ridiculous dog or cat, c'mon! >> eric: great idea. >> dana: who is going to make the seat belt? >> eric: above 80-degrees you can't leave them in car even with windows down. great. protect the animals. >> bob: what are you going to do with cats? herd cats in seat belts? >> eric: who is next? >> greg: you are. >> eric: how do we say the happy day of atonement to the jewish members out here. viewers out here. day of atonemen
romney. however, if the governor can do what ronald reagan did in 1980, that is keep the incumbent president on the defense during the debates, then the polls will surely change. that's not an easy thing to do because the debate formats allow the candidates to say pretty much whatever they want to sacht the moderator next week jim lair is not going to control obama or romney. he will ask a question and keep quiet. that's not a knock on will he leher. any interruptions are deemed inappropriate. the out of touch with the folks. the president has spent hundreds of millions of dollars on ads stating that. the governor does come across as a classic rich guy. it's tough to picture him super sizing his meal at mcdonald's. the kennedy's were like that as well. but in this class warfare age, that perception is certainly holding romney back. the president's record is dubious to say the least. but many americans aren't paying attention and will vote on emotion. thus the rich guy and regular phi scenario. governor romney has only one chance. he must convince voters during the debates that if t
